Verify Eligibility for Employment (I-9)

Main content start

To comply with U.S. law, Stanford must verify eligibility for employment for all new employees – within three days of hire – by collecting a Form I-9 and reviewing original documents that establish the employee's eligibility to work in the United States.

Make an I-9 Appointment

  • You are responsible for scheduling an in-person I-9 appointment to meet a University Human Resources (UHR) representative to review and confirm your ability to work in the United States. Stanford makes it easy, with multiple locations on varying days of the week. Walk-ins will not be accepted.
  • At each location, there should be a sign (or information in your confirmation email) that instructs you to call a phone number when you arrive, as the buildings may require entry assistance.

Documentation to Bring to the Appointment

Employees must present original, current, and unexpired physical documents to verify employment eligibility. Photocopies and electronic copies are not acceptable. Expired IDs are not acceptable. Acceptable documents are listed on page 2 of the federal government's Form I-9.

New and rehired employees who have not completed the Form I-9

  1. Download the Form I-9 and complete Section 1
  2. Schedule an appointment at a location using the buttons below
  3. Print and bring the Form I-9 with the acceptable document(s) to the appointment

Current employees that need to re-verify due to a change in status, employment authorization, or employment authorization documents
